Quick Updates

Weather Conditions

Season: Autumn

With the cooling season of Autumn, Ice-types are starting to re-emerge from their hibernation as Ghost-, Normal-, and Flying-types swarm in the largest numbers they will all year. In comparison, wild Fire- and Bug-type populations are falling in number. The migration of Flying-types to the south in search of warmer weather has also started, as Istin City starts to re-freeze and Autumn marks the beginning of Cypwater Point's rainy season. Handlers and Rogues alike should be wary: Ghost-type powers are boosted during this season, at the cost of being more prone to their triggers.

Character: Gregory Beauchamp

Full Name: Gregory Beauchamp
Age: 25
Gender: Male
Sexuality: Homosexual

Class: Handler
Starting City: Istin City
Patron or Trick Lord: ---
Merits/Credits/Notches: Lv.06 [ 6.2 / 10 ]
Condition: Fine

Overall Appearance:
    An average looking person, with an average looking face. In a statement is probably the best way to describe Gregory. The most memorable thing about him would probably be his emerald green eyes, clear and bright, the only obvious reminder of his mother. His mousey brown hair is cut short enough to be manageable and easily maintained, but still shows a little bit of a wild side. This is mainly when it is wet, as it tends to curl.

    To look him in the face, apart from the eyes there really isn’t much to say he is who he is. He has a slight scar above his left eye, but it is not that noticeable unless you look through his eye brow. The scar was caused by walking around in a day-dream, as he tends to quite often, and hitting his head on a partially opened door.

    Standing at less than six foot, 5’10” to be precise, he isn’t the tallest man in the world, but he isn’t the smallest either. His body type seems to match his height, again making him less conspicuous to anyone. He isn’t thick set with bulging muscles, but he’s neither stick thin either. His clothing tends to camouflage his body. He wears clothes that fit, but they are so plain and boring, they make it difficult to tell you how big he actually is. He tends to wear a shirt made from Mareep wool, along with plain trousers and Miltank hide boots and belt. His belt has gaps that pokeballs can be placed into when you capture pokémon, and also have loops for weapons and coin purses.

    There is only one thing that he is embarrassed to show anyone, and that is the birthmark that on his right leg. It covers the backside of the calf and is harmless enough. People think that he was burnt or maimed in some way, and in reality it was there from when he was born and has never went away. So to save him the time and effort of explaining to everyone he tends just not to show anyone. He only wears one piece of jewellery, and that is a ring on his little finger of his right hand. It is a little trinket that isn’t worth much, but is priceless to Gregory.
Distinguishing Features:
  • Emerald eyes
  • Birth mark on right leg (hidden by trousers)
Overall Personality:
    With Gregory what you see is what you get. He is a very kind hearted soul, and can rarely say no to a request. He has found a few times that this can get him into situations where he does not want to be. He remembers this often been used against him, cleaning out stables or washing the floor of his mother’s home, for example. Something that directly links to soul is the fact at times he can wear his heart upon his sleeve, and emotions are something that he isn’t short of. If he needs to laugh, he’ll laugh, if he needs to cry, he’ll cry. However, he is very good at hiding his true feelings.

    He became an expert at this when he finally realised who he was. He had to hide his sexuality from his mother for the reason, she was the biggest bigot going, and what made it even worse was he was attracted to someone his mother worked with. Plus he doesn’t like having the awkward conversations about his sexuality, as he prefers to be seen and not heard. He avoids uncomfortable situations like a Pidgey would try to avoid a Seviper.

    Gregory is not the most confident of people, and finds it harder to trust men. This is due to the fact his father was a bigamist, and fathered another family. He hates people who cheat. He is a big believer of staying with someone through thick and thin. His confidence also links to the fact he doesn’t think he’s good enough to be a guardian. It’s not something he shares with anyone, but he believes he will never be ready to join the ranks. However he has never had a thought of going to the dark side and become a rogue.

    One fault for Gregory is he is a constant day-dreamer and is a little bit gullible. He has been duped out of big amounts of gold before whilst day-dreaming about pokémon and battling with them. With this and his lack of confidence, some people see him as an easy target. It’s something that he is aware of, but isn’t ready to deal with it. He believes that no-one is perfect and everyone has their flaws.

    Since discovering about his partner’s demise, [See RP sample] Gregory has become somewhat of a pessimist. Because of this he has found himself drawn to certain types of pokemon. Although he likes all pokemon, he finds more comfort with certain types. At current he is unsure whether he will train a team of pokemon to match his current feelings, because he knows that he will eventually pick himself back up, though he will never forget Shaun.
History:
    Gregory’s history is a scattered one. From a young age he realised that his father wasn’t someone who he could rely on, and came to learn that his mother was the only person that he could really seek out for advice. He lived a relatively quiet life in Harper’s Pass. It wasn’t until he was eleven years old that his life begun to unravel. It was at this age that he learnt that his father had another family, and that he actually had a half-sister. It was not long after this bombshell that he and his mother discovered that he had been killed by the other woman.

    For the next two years, Gregory’s life basically became a life of looking after his mother, who did eventually get over losing “the love of her life” as she so delicately put it. His mother’s role in life was actually that of a Guardian, so from the age of thirteen, Gregory was used to being left alone at the family home along with his Mother’s Piloswine for protection. Even though he was taught not to leave the home when he was on his own, he often did and soon got used to battling with Piloswine, and eventually other pokémon that his mother left with him, as she often liked to rotate which pokémon she took with her on missions. These missions could last from anything to a couple of days to a couple of months, so he spent the time learning about pokémon and battling. Sometimes from just watching from the house, and sometimes by going out into the street to see which pokémon were running about.

    By the age of sixteen, his mother discovered what he had been up to, and decided that it would be in his best interests to get him a tutor of sorts. This tutor spent time with him teaching him all about pokémon, battling and capturing, and even to some point the physiology of them. The latter being something that he didn’t take in. But Gregory had noticed that with the tutor being there practically all the time his mother was away, he wasn’t able to go out alone any more. By the time he reached his twentieth birthday, his mother felt he was ready to know about her job, and why she didn’t feel safe allowing Gregory to go about the streets alone.

    His mother explained her job. She was a Guardian, who sometimes worked for the Queen, but her main task, and the job she enjoyed doing was bounty collecting. Up to the point where she was explaining her life, she told him that she had already captured 300 bounties, and that she expected a huge sum of money to be on her head by the order. It was at this point that Gregory decided that he wouldn’t take either side in his life, and would work as a Handler, for himself and to help the people of Harper’s Pass.

    Life was pretty normal for the next two or three years, he heard the odd scrap about his half-sister, and discovered her name was Charlotte, but not just more than that. He passed time doing the odd chore for people in Harper’s Pass, mainly helping the elderly with their shopping, and all other things cliché that no self-respecting handler would take on. But for the fact he was still yet to gain his own pokémon, these were the only jobs he was capable of doing.

    It was at twenty-four that Gregory discovered his feelings towards the same sex, and although he was very good at keeping them in check, he still had days when he didn’t. Unfortunately for him, his mother caught him on one of these days, flirting with a Guardian with whom she had worked with. This was when Gregory discovered how much of a bigot his mother truly was. After being reprimanded for flirting with an officer of the law, his mother decided that Gregory would no longer live under her roof, or in Harper’s Pass. In effect she banished him from the city, citing that she would arrest him as a Rogue if she were to see him within the city walls again.

    Gregory didn’t pack, he left with the few gold coins that he had already in his pocket. He didn’t give his mother the satisfaction of looking back, and he didn’t cry…. Well, he didn’t cry until he was out of the city. He then walked aimlessly for what seemed like weeks, avoiding vagabonds and pokémon alike. Everything was a blur to him, he passed through Marchton and Miramossa, but neither of these cities felt like home to him. He eventually headed north and soon came across Istin City. The whole story behind the city enthralled him. The fact the city was built upwards and not outwards amazed him.

    For the next year, he worked in a Tavern, basically so it would pay for his board in the Inn that was part of the Tavern. It was here that he met Shaun, the man who became the love of his life, and there was no-one to tell them that they shouldn’t be together, although it was still in secret as he wanted to become guardian, and also for the fact Shaun’s grandmother was one of Gregory’s favourite patrons in the Tavern. Shaun helped him realise that he hadn’t been put off about being a Handler, he still wanted to help people, but instead of helping the people of Harper’s Pass, he would help the people of Istin City.

Gregory's Friends

user posted image
The Raven, Honchkrow http://files.jcink.net/uploads/harperregion/sprites/e335252.gif
Characteristic: Loyal


The Raven was a Pokemon that was always destined to become Gregory’s. He once belonged to Gregory’s Partner, and he had raised the Dark type Pokemon specifically with Gregory in mind. Unbeknownst to Gregory, Shaun actually received this Pokemon in an egg, which he specially requested from his Patron, and raised it to a level where him he’d perfect for a new trainer to pick up his raising. The Raven always knew that Shaun wouldn’t be his true master, but grew attached to him. When he first met Gregory, in Lena’s Tavern, he immediately knew that he was his true handler. This was due to the fact that he was obviously bereaved by the passing of his temporary master. The Raven had always promised to watch over Gregory, he would be Shaun’s eyes.

There is only thing about The Raven that Gregory isn’t fond of, and that’s one of his moves that he inherited from his parents. Gregory will only begrudgingly use the move Perish Song. It’s the only move that The Raven can perform that has a certainty. The Raven is loyal and will do anything for Gregory; it is something that hasn’t had taught to him. He already respects Gregory, and knows Gregory respects him. The Raven is the most tactical of Gregory’s Pokemon, and utilises moves such as Taunt and Torment to push opponents into a corner.


QUOTE (Gregory's Opinion of The Raven)
A constant reminder of what used to be. He was his, and was passed onto me as his wish. I certainly feel happy working alongside one of Shaun's partner's. We worked well together as soon as we seen each other. I am proud to say that The Raven is my first ever Pokemon! He will always be with me, and will always remind me that Shaun would want me to push through life and make my own course. I just wish I hadn't had to receive him in the manner that I did.


QUOTE (The Raven's Opinion of Gregory)
I will always watch over Master. It was my previous master's wish, and Master Gregory has the sun of Master Shaun within his heart. I will never be alone, as long as Shaun and Gregory are watching over me. I will happily DIE for him.


Moves The Raven is destined to know:



  • Thunder Wave


  • Double Team


  • Return


  • Shadow Ball


  • Psychic

The Duchess, Glaceon http://files.jcink.net/uploads/harperregion/sprites/e335251.gif
Characteristic: Proud, Reliable


The Duchess was received through an understanding that Gregory didn’t know existed. She chose to go along with him, after getting permission from her previous handler, Instructor Tosh. After battling Gregory and The Raven, which ended in what was seemingly a draw, she felt that Gregory was a worthy enough Handler to control her. It seems that she already trusts Gregory enough to listen to him without really thinking.

Gregory knows first-hand how powerful this ice type is. Her Ice type moves, along with her two egg moves are certainly a good combination. Gregory also believes that she will work well with The Raven, and eventually the two will be able to cover for the other’s weaknesses, and will be able to aid each other by weakening their enemies and powering each other up.

QUOTE (Gregory's Opinion of The Duchess)
A possible femme fatale. A reliable and proud Pokemon, that will be a godsend on some missions. As with The Raven, we struck an almost immediate relationship. She recognises me for my potential, and I feel that we will grow stronger together. She bares no grudges. She will most defiantly become a powerhouse within my team of friends.


QUOTE (The Duchess' Opinion of Gregory)
Gregory certainly seems an able partner, although I am not quite ready to call him master like The Raven. It seems that the bird understands him a lot more than I ever will, but then he was actually tailored to fit him. I believe in him as a Handler, and will follow his commands to the best of my ability.  I really think I will be calling master sooner that I originally anticapted.


Moves The Duchess is destined to know:
  • Attract
  • Dig
  • Rain Dance
  • Toxic
  • Substitute
